When ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ will return, Ken Burns on ‘The U.S. and the Holocaust,’ and more PBS news

What had been intended to be a return to in-person Television Critics Association press tours has turned into another virtual event on short notice, as the rising number of Covid cases driven by highly contagious Omicron subvariants made gathering in a Pasadena hotel an unworkable option. Which means the TCA summer 2022 press tour is once again a video conference event, with creators and stars of TV shows appearing remotely, answering questions from journalists via Zoom and the like.

Ken Burns Presents Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness | A film by Erik Ewers and Christopher Loren Ewers

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: YOUTH MENTAL ILLNESS, which premieres June 27 and 28, 2022 at 9:00 p.m. ET (check local listings) on PBS, PBS.org and the PBS Video app, features first-person accounts from more than 20 young people, ranging in age from 11 to 27, who live with mental health conditions. The documentary also includes commentary from parents, teachers, friends, healthcare providers in their lives, and independent mental health experts. The program presents an unvarnished window into daily life with mental health challenges, from seemingly insurmountable obstacles to stories of hope and resilience. Through the experiences of these young people, the film confronts the issues of stigma, discrimination, awareness, and silence, and, in doing so, helps advance a shift in the public perception of mental health issues today. The film is part of Well Beings, a national multiplatform campaign from WETA Washington, D.C., the flagship public media station in the nation’s capital, to demystify and destigmatize our physical and mental health through storytelling. A preview of the documentary, with a special message from executive producer Ken Burns, is available at wellbeings.org/plainsight.
